  What does a 1 bedroom Brickell REO at One Miami sell for? Early this week I closed a 1 bedroom Brickell REO sale at One Miami, Located at 325 S Biscayne Blvd.  This sale is representative of buyers who are willing to pay market value and recognize an opportunity when they see it. In this case I represented the buyer who was willing to follow my lead and was able to secure and close the unit based on my recommendations.  Brickell REO’s are selling like wild fire these days and there are several strategies that listings agents take to get them sold. Brickell REO scenario One:  List them at market value and hope buyers are interested enough to make an offer and willing to buy the unit at its market value and not negotiate. Brickell REO scenario Two: Price it below market value and create...

Considering the Brickell Condo Market? In a sign that the Brickell Condo Market is improving, properties are taking less time to sell than a year back.  The first quarter of the year for the Brickell Condo Market is shaping up to be a time of rebounding sales and prices. Brickell condo sales are up by a slight margin from a year back rising to a level of 206 closed sales to date, up from 200 in the first quarter of 2010.  Average sales prices have also improved to $259 per square foot, up from $253 the previous year.  Obviously being a full time Brickell realtor who resides in Brickell, I have personally experienced this trend and I am seeing a return to a healthy market. Unfortunately, the Brickell Condo Market isn’t that simple!  Buildings in the Brickell market, just like specific ne...

My motto on holiday entertaining is "KISS... Keep it simple stupid!"  Joking aside, over the course of the last couple of years I have grown fond of entertaining in my home for friends, clients and colleagues!  One of my secrets to keeping it simple is my favorite catering restaurant located just steps away from home!  Perricone's Marketplace and Cafe offers downtown Miami's best Italian food in a casual rustic setting that was created from an old barn deconstructed from its original location up north, and re-built in the heart of Miami's Brickell Avenue, Mary Brickell Village. Apart from a cool setting, the restaurant offers a full bar and deli, pastry and dessert selections perfect for dining in, take out or for all your catering needs!  With a very reasonably priced menu, for dine-in...

Living in the Brickell Avenue, Downtown Miami, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove neighborhoods? Looking for a great night out without the partying crowd in a club or bar?  I've got the perfect place for you!! I just spent the evening in one of my favorite places to hang, which is a simple drive just across the causeway onto South Miami Beach and walk down Lincoln Road.  Check out Upstairs at Van Dyke's restaurant located on the corner of Lincoln Rd. and Jefferson St. Van Dyke's may look like a typical Lincoln Rd. restaurant downstairs, but upstairs it turns into a chill scene with low lit lighting and live music nightly.  One of my favorite performers that frequently appear "Upstairs" is the amazing Nicole Henry!  She was performing tonight with her smooth and sumptuous style! She performe...

I often talk to renters who are looking for pet friendly condos in Brickell or South Beach!  Worry not, they are out there!  39% of all households in the US have a dog as a part of their family based on US Census statistics!  As a landlord when I was renting out my property I had to consider what portion of the population I would simply be cutting out of my eligible tenant pool if I didn't accept pets.  Obviously as a renter you need to be a responsible pet owner and abide by condo association guidelines as well as city regulations such as cleaning up after your pets!  Many pet friendly condos in Brickell and South Beach feature tiled or marble flooring surfaces making it much easier to clean up, which is both a benefit for the tenant and the landlord.  Remember that it is customary for...
